, religion, political opinion, or membership in a social group. the siv program is based on service with the united states. this is something mr. bartlett is more of an expert on. congress legislated a program to say that those who have worked for the united states government -- there are three sub categories within the program -- initially it was small if you were a translator with the military and then expanded beyond that. it is the fact of their service with the united states that makes them eligible. when they come to the united states, both our agencies handle this and they don't come as a refugee. they, as a lawful, permanent resident so they get a green card. based on their service. there are some individuals who may be eligible to apply for both programs. we work on the refugee side of the program the individuals may choose which of those two avenues is better for them, which operates more quickly dependent they are in iraq or -- >> today operate on a parallel track or is there a preference given to someone who has served as an interpreter for our troops out in the midst of

the world's great religions have, what according political christians, unacceptable positions or policy of positions, kind of getting to the point where christianity is an easy target. so the christian pastor goes. but when you talk about maybe a jewish rabbi or a muslim imam holding the same positions, now is the intimidation campaign of the left leveled at them? not as of now. christianity seems to be the easy target, but we're going down a slippery slope where any person of faith in a position of authority representing any kind of major faith is going to be subjected to this kind of intimidation and bullying campaign and that's not right. now, this is an extension of the word police. we've been talking about the word police in a lighter context with brent musburger calling katherine webb beautiful and-- >> she's beautiful. >> and it broke loose. in this case, too, you've got the political angle. it is the presidential inauguration, it's different, but we're going down the road where nobody can say anything. and if you go up to the line, it's considered unacceptable and you're out. >>

exercise of religion, applies to these companies that have principles that the owners of these companies have religious convictions and to force or compel someone to violate their conscience is exactly what the free exercise clause of the constitution of the united states was designed to prevent. and this is turned that upside down. i think the obama administration just needs to go back and rewrite their exemptions here. and that would solve this problem. this could be handled administratively. so far the obama administration, president obama's administration has no desire to do that. that's why we're in court. bill: i understand you're looking for delay on this, but meantime us does the company pay the fine? >> they don't have to until the fine is assessed. i used to work with treasury. the question will be when will the actual fine be assessed against the company. that's where i think the department of justice and the department of labor should hold back and wait until the cases are adjudicated. bill: which reached -- >> most of the cases go in our favor, i understand the point you're
governments. it does not happen that way. culture, tradition, religion, ethnic, are all part of that. i talked about alliances. that is why alliances are important. you work within those systems. to effect change and influence change. there are some things going on in the world today that are disgusting, that are despicable, that we hate. but we have limitations as to what we can do to change that. we should always be about helping the people who want to change it. we have limitations. and great powers run into very difficult times when they do not recognize that they too have limitations to their power. all individuals have limitations. nations must be wise enough to understand this. host: as senator chuck hagel, in his speech, and two years ago -- as you hear the words he talks about the limits of power. that echoed what the president said that in 2008 when he was running for the white house. guest: i think that is right. i think one of the conditions that president obama and his team -- a lot of demands and expectations of rumba world and a lot of challenges. america's role is not just to k
